Saying Goodbye To 2015! Come On 2016!!!!!

Saying Goodbye To 2015! Come On 2016!!!!!

melodyscottrubybeachmarch1st2015

Hubby and I have been working on our farm since August of 2013. Another year has quickly disappeared, so many great and sad things have come and gone. We are most grateful to GOD for keeping us healthy; emotionally, physically and mentally. We are fifty-five now and this is one of our final bucket list destinations. Living our life simpler with less stress. 2016 we will celebrate our twenty-third year as a couple. Wow!

Great things:

Arena completed.

Hay cut and donated to starving horses as we will grow low sugar/protein hay (sell).

Enjoyed the Olympic Mountains over and over again.

Fences completed, stained.

I created an amazing food garden out of hanging baskets. After the house is completed I will have raised beds.IMG_20150519_133142IMG_20150519_133656IMG_20150519_133744

Living in the 5th wheel has been a challenge in the winter seasons but extremely easy in the spring, summer and fall as we have full sun on our farm, Sequim, WA.

Less rain has helped my body, arthritis and pain will be with me the rest of my life from the Semi-truck accident. Screws in my pelvis cause severe pain and arthritis.

Jewel our twelve year old middle dog had a very dangerous tumor (cancer) on her hip and tummy. Surgery was successful and she is healing she is one strong dog. Thank you Jesus!

We have a new puppy!

Naturally we did the best thing;

We had our vet send him to heaven no more pain, I cried for three weeks and still call the new puppy his name. I will always love you Sampson! Sampson was our rescue Great Pyrenees/Akita. We had no idea he was sick until one week before he let us know with extreme screaming pain.

I thought I had a publisher for my donkey educational book, turned out to be a scam. Still praying for a publisher.

My hubby Scott and I are grateful to GOD to give us this farm, let us own the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC and keep our marriage strong in the middle of some serious test and trials. We are best friends. If you get the opportunity to marry, marry your best friend. Love and friendship must go hand-and-hand as marriage is hard work.

Living in a small space is not easy but it can be done. We are a testimonial to this. IMG_6423

Jesus, Life, Animals, marriage and Unconditional Love


riogivingmelodyhug

Friends Of The Donkey Whisperer Farm,

Life Is Precious and Fragile

newfarmphoto1 

Perhaps this is your first time reading my blog, I want to say thank you for reading my blog as I pray that my pain and suffering will in some way help you find peace, joy and come to your knees for Jesus Christ as us humans can do nothing without Jesus.  Select GOD created a miracle for me to read more.

Before the accident I was healthy, happy, riding my horse three times a week for three and four-hour trail rides with other ladies I met that liked to ride horses with me I felt like we were friends as we had much in common (it is safer to trail ride with a buddy).  All of these friends never ever checked in on me or called me again after the accident.  Our church and close friends brought food, cards and more in to help but after six months the phone stopped ringing and then they went away too.  Still GOD provided blessings with my husband standing by me and all of my angel animals.

Trauma will either break a marriage or make it stronger

Thank you Jesus trauma made our marriage of almost twenty-one years living together and fourteen years being married stronger.

Why Do People Go Away During Trauma?

We had one set of friends who did not go away and they are still our close friends but that’s it. Trauma seems to burn all the non-essential things away from our life and I experienced a period of time of spending many, many hours and years alone while my husband went to work, in my most deepest times of pain and suffering I used my Ipod with Max McLean reading the bible to me Psalms was very helpful. As I was not able to lift my bible up the pain was to great with all the broken ribs and collapsed lung.  Job was the most helpful for at the end of Job GOD gives JOB double for his trouble!  If you read JOB you will see Job did nothing wrong to get the pain and suffering he endured as I did nothing wrong to deserve the pain and suffering I endured and still endure each and every day from the rods in my pelvis. This is what GOD is doing for me and my husband he is giving us double for our trouble and it feels like he is rewarding us for staying in faith with Jesus as I am slowly getting stronger and stronger and the new medicine helps tremendously with the pain.

Mellily2009

My life was it seemed to me to be perfect as I would wake up each morning like a child at christmas I could not wait to get down to the barn to see my horse and donkeys a dream come true.  I had waited thirty-four years to get a horse again and I was so happy to finally have my children full-grown and get this last chance before I was too old.  In a matter of seconds everything changed forever as I got into a car with a person who made a mistake ran a stop sign and a semi-truck full of cow manure smashed into the passenger door where I was sitting.  I am forever disabled but I am not dead in fact in many ways I am a better person for what I have survived as I now have the ability to read an authentic human from the rest in a matter of seconds.  Many long-term friends of over thirty years went away.  Why?  Well I guess they were weak and could not stay with me while I suffered year after year with pain and agony so they just stopped being my friend and even betrayed me at my most darkest hour.  Looking back these people were not bad people they were simply weak people who could not do the right thing under trauma. “GOD burnt away all non-essential relationships with the trauma and he is bringing some amazing new people to be my friends into my life, people who are stronger than me and people who truly have depth perception of this little thing called life.”

After I almost died nothing else really mattered to me except keeping my marriage and my farm.  The little distractions in life that used to bother me no longer bother me as they are non-essential.

I truly believe that my animals helped me get well as they gave me the inspiration to push hard to continue with physical therapy for three years.  They pushed me to never give up and get my life back and I am forever grateful to my husband for letting me keep my farm in the midst of trauma.

What Did Grandpa Say About Friends?

My grandfather is long gone to heaven now and I miss him every single day as I do my father, I lost my father at the age of nine years old. “Grandpa would say to me, Melody if you walk with ducks you will become a duck. Be careful who you choose to be your friend.”  

Earlier today I was discussing this issue with a fellow blogger and well it gave me the desire to write a post about how animals can heal our human broken heart. Animals will love us humans unconditionally 100% and never ever hurt us or let us down unlike most humans.

A nest of baby wild rabbits in my flower garden – truly a gift from GOD!

I can’t wait to see them hopping around the farm

babyrabbitttts

One of the reasons I have been drawn to animals since I was a young child was I picked up on this at a very young age.  “Animals can determine in a matter of seconds the character of a human being as they have a natural sixth sense that helps them determine who is a great and safe human and who is angry and dangerous.”

The bible is clear that we must put all of our trust in Jesus and not in mankind as humans will betray or disappoint us.  Why is this?  I think very weak humans cannot help themselves they only do what they have grown up doing or they were betrayed and hurt so deeply that they cannot love themselves.

lilymelodybarn2013

Back to animals

Animals love unconditionally, they truly do!  Animals do not ask much from us humans, shelter, food, water, love, petting and they know when we are sad, afraid, mad or tired.  They know when we are happy, excited and they pick up on our energy.

Animals live in the moment they truly do.  Animals enjoy each day as it comes and do not worry about what tomorrow will bring.

Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

We think of our animals like family, how do you think of your animals?

Fireworks and Pets


  1. Photo: Type, "Me" if you are thankful for the FREEDOM!</p>
<p>Happy July 4th!!!!

Donkey Whisperer Farm Blog

Howdy,

Fireworks and Pets Not A Good Combination:

Plan ahead to keep pets safe; owning pets is a huge responsibility and for those of us who have equine (donkeys, horses and mules) living in rural areas we must be extra careful.  The equine is a prey animal meaning  they get scared when the fireworks start, and the smell is in the air.  Some horses have been known to run into fences.  Locking them in their stalls is the safest when neighbors are shooting off fireworks I turn the radio up and give lot’s of hay and fresh water.

Want to read more tips on pet safety and fireworks?  Select Blue Cross Pets Fireworks for more details.

Dogs and cats can get so scared of fireworks they can run off and not be able to find their way home best to keep them locked in the house too. Our doggies get very stressed, turning…

It’s only a little treat…right?


Vet Tech Check

Before you give your adorable pooch or cuddly kitty another bit of human food, take a look at this graphic that explains the significance of that ‘harmless’ little treat. This is one of the ways our pets gain weight so quickly without us knowing why. To us it’s just one chip, but to them, it’s a LOT more.
